The full bar offers a list of house cocktails that are based on classics, but modernized for a more contemporary palette.

Had a reservation for Father’s Day morning. Hostess was rude when seating us. The Server was awesome, the drinks were great, food was average, price point was great The hostess ruined it. Hostess was rude again when we left. Service rating went from a four to a two. Won’t be back.

The fried polenta strips were a great starter. Kale salad was excellent. The fried chicken was great -- crispy and not greasy. Good mashed potatoes -- the sour cream makes them stand out. Cheeseburger was very good. Excellent mixed drinks and extensive wine list. Seemed like a friendly place frequented by locals. Next time I'm going to be sure to try the mushroom bread pudding. It looked great, and it's hard to find good savory bread puddings.

The food was delicious, especially the pancakes. The drinks were delicious. But the best thing about Miller's Rest is the friendly, accommodating, helpful and funny staff. They truly made our time there a delight, and we will be going back.

Food was really fantastic! Every dish was a delight! Unfortunately I had to frequently get up and go find a waiter when we needed service. Don't know if they were understaffed but that needs to be fixed, other then that 5 Stars!

Sat outside for brunch and shared a (warm) blueberry buckle and we each had the chicken and gravy - all very delicious and didn't disappoint. The pepper gravy was so tasty, we asked for an extra side. Mimosas were a good ratio of bubbly to juice. Service was attentive and friendly. Parklett setup was welcoming and cute, like they put some thought into the details. Just wish they had heat lamps for each table. The indoor restaurant had a cool vibe also and we look forward to going back and hanging at the bar.

Started with the beef skewers. Every bite it kept getting better. Had mac n cheese and then the steak. Was a little scared when she instantly asked me if i wanted it cooked medium. Lol. Told her rare and the flavors of everything was paired perfectly. My gf got the mac n cheese and said she would be comparing every mac n cheese that that one for awhile. Cool place im glad we went.
We both had the Lakeshore??? To drink the tequila with citrus agave. Strong but tasty. Would go back 100%

We didn’t know what to expect, since we found Miller’s Rest on Open Table and not from word of mouth. We loved it! The food, service, and ambiance were all great. We were there for brunch, which had a varied menu with both brunch and lunch choices. My friend and I shared the mashed potato and smoked trout spread and the banana caramel pancakes. My husband had the cheeseburger; my friend’s husband had the shrimp with grits. There was no food left on our plates. Everything was delicious, but the banana pancakes were especially outstanding.

The place was nice and the staff was friendly but the food was really bad and we both had a horrible stomach ache and cramps for 2 days after.
I’m not sure if there was some food contamination in the kitchen but it made us feel very sick.
I wish the experience was different as we were celebrating a birthday.....

First time dining in this brilliant, neighborhood haunt. Had weekend brunch and it was delicious!! Fried Chicken breast with a biscuit and the most ‘Devine’ gravy. Ordered a side egg and bacon as well. I cannot fault the food as the taste was fantastic. The a la carte nature of the menu is, perhaps, the only consideration for review and it will not keep me away for another visit. These people can cook !!!!

Looking forward to dinner on another visit, especially if they have meatloaf on the menu, funny as that may sound but this place seems to lean towards comfort food and that is sorely missing in this city.

More to come :)

My hanger steak was excellent. My husband’s fish was a little dry, but still OK.
